How can they get away with bringing up old dwi's to extort me out of more money just because of a new law, 7 years later?
My first and ONLY dwi of 35 years of clean driving record, paid and complied with every demand, full compliance to the letter of law. Over 7 years later, a new law in affect, they pull up an old dui, refuse my license and extorting more money from me. Holding my license hostage till I pay up AGAIN!!! Somebody has got to do something about these people and thier stupid laws! I live in a very small rural town in the middle of no where, not much traffic, trying to comply and abide by the rules. look at HUMAN circumstances! Ignition Interlocks, PLEASE! anyone can blow in them to start a vehicle, call it what it is, A SCAM and EXTORTION, I even tried to comply with that, My vehicle is a motorcycle and I am refused ignition lock. Just how far are they allowed to go with my rights, freedom!
Because driving is a prilege, one which you abused, and not a right, they can get away with a lot.
I got a arrested for DUI .10 what are my chances of winning this case?
I cant believe i am this position and i put myself in this situation and so close to apply for my citizenship. I got arrested for DUI 2 weeks ago, my first offense never had an issue like this before my alcohol level was .10, the cop who arrested me was very aggressive at the beginning he even accused me of resisting my arrest when it wasn't true! thank god he didn't charge me for that too, he never read me my rights even when he made me use the Breathalyzer. when finally i got out of jail and checked that he put on my file that i was Mexican! where did he got that from? i am Colombian just because i speak Spanish doesn't mean i am Mexican, and the way he stopped me, he said i was speeding before i got in the freeway but he was following me for 10 minutes before stopping me on the freeway!.
This depends a lot on your attorney unfortunately. You need to have someone on your case who works in dwi defense...
Moving to a Nevada with a new Mexico interlock
I plead guilty to a dwi first offense in NM I competed all court requirements of the IID but the MVD in NM is still requiring it despite having won my administrative heating. I am moving to Nevada and will obtain residency. If I have met all court imposed sanctions and cleared the case will Nevada still require the IID even if I have established Nevada residency?
I am not licensed in Nevada or New Mexico, but my strong hunch is that Nevada will defer to or honor New Mexico on...

I had one failed rolling retest on my interlock, then passed moments later. Do I need to worry?
First and last DUI. I don't drink anymore. Did all my probation stuff, pass every urine screening. Passed the first one that morning, started the car. Deiced the windshield using a spray which got into my mouth. Started to drive and rolling retest beeped a fail on me. But didn't honk horn or flash lights. Then I passed not a minute later. Compliance officer isn't worried but I am.
I don't think so. The retest was negative. I think you're fine.
Who do I talk to so I can get my license back?
I received a DWI in NM in 2009. I never attended the MVD hearing and my license got revoked. In 2013 my DWI case got dismissed after I completed everything in the courts. From Aug. 2012-September 2013 I completed an interlock. MVD was never notified of my interlock and I never obtained an interlock license. I have all paperwork to prove I had the interlock and the dismissed case. I never knew how the process worked and was never informed on how to take care of it through the MVD. Would I be able to get my license back by myself with all my paperwork, or do I hire a lawyer to handle this for me? I'm sure there has to be a way to get it back through all proof I have without doing the interlock again because it just isn't right for them to do this regardless of what I've taken care of.
I am not licensed in New Mexico (I am licensed in California), but why don't you go to the MVD with all your paperwork...
